Collin Broholm Experimental condensed matter physicist

Collin Broholm is interested in anomalous forms of magnetism, superconductivity, and their interplay. Of particular interest are crystalline materials where quantum effects are enhanced on account of competing interactions (frustration) or low dimensionality. The main experimental tool is neutron scattering and Broholm has a long standing involvement in development of the corresponding instrumentation. He has built two spectrometers at the NIST Center for Neutron Research and has served on a number of committees overseeing instrumentation development at National facilities for Neutron Scattering. He served on the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee from 1999-2003.
